The Bird Gallery is another impressive gallery in the museum, with its collection of birds that spend some or all of their time in Canada. The collection is assembled by theme, locations, and other ideas, and includes some hands-on activities such as seeing a scene the way a bird does, or seeing your own weight compared to that of birds.
Provincial and territorial birds of Canada are grouped together. The gyrfalcon represents the Northwest Territories, while New Brunswick designates the black capped chickadee as theirs.
British Columbia has the steller's jay, and Alberta has the great horned owl.
Saskatchewan has the sharp tailed grouse, and the common raven represents the Yukon.
Nunavut has designated the rock ptarmigan as their official bird, and Ontario has the common loon.
Nova Scotia chose the osprey, while Quebec has the snowy owl.
And finishing the set, Newfoundland and Labrador uses the Atlantic puffin for their provincial bird. Manitoba features the Great Grey Owl. And Prince Edward Island has chosen the blue jay as their provincial bird.
